Rolando has reportedly put in a formal request to his club Porto to terminate his contract.
The 28-year-old spent last season on loan at Inter, with his performances enough to tempt the Nerazzurri into trying to secure his signature on a permanent basis.
According to Portuguese outlet Correio da Manha, this may now be a step closer to reality after the defender apparently took matters into his own hands by making the request to leave.
According to the report, Rolando is unhappy that the Portuguese side have not paid him bonuses that he believes he is due.
